HoopsHype Chris Bosh rumors


February 20, 2015 Updates

The Heat remained unsure of Chris Bosh’s medical situation Friday morning, but they are confident that their star player’s life is not in jeopardy. Bosh has been hospitalized this week in Miami and remained there for continued examinations while his teammates headed north to visit the Knicks on Friday. There were multiple media reports that doctors are concerned Bosh has a blood clot in his lungs, which would likely end his season, but coach Erik Spoelstra cautioned everyone to be patient.

If the clot issue is confirmed, Bosh potentially could miss the remainder of the season. "In terms of all the rumors and speculation, we're aware of all the things that are out there," Spoelstra said in New York, where the Heat will play the Knicks on Friday night. "Everybody's jumping the gun right now. I know there's a lot out there. "Frankly, there's not a full diagnosis right now. So for everybody to speculate, right now at this stage it's very premature."

Bosh was admitted to a Miami-area hospital Thursday after meeting with a doctor. The Heat’s power forward underwent initial tests that proved inconclusive, according to the Heat. The fear is that Bosh could have blood clots on his lungs. If there is a pulmonary embolus, or multiple clots, then Bosh would be out for the remainder of the season, and possibly longer, while being treated with blood thinners for pulmonary embolism.

Heat power forward Chris Bosh was admitted to a Miami-area hospital Thursday to undergo testing, according to the team. Bosh was “under the weather” on Wednesday when he reported to practice, according to Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, and team trainers sent Bosh to see a doctor. He did not attend practice Thursday and was instead admitted to the hospital. Miami Herald

Asked on Thursday after practice whether Bosh was sick in Haiti, Wade said, “I don’t know if he was sick. I’m not a doctor. I just know he wasn’t feeling good. He wasn’t coughing or throwing up, but he just wasn’t feeling good. So I don’t know when it happened. It could have happened in New York.” Although Bosh noted discomfort in his side last Friday, he appeared healthy. On Saturday, he won the All-Star Shooting Stars competition at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, and on Sunday, Bosh played 11 minutes in the All-Star Game at Madison Square Garden. Miami Herald
